Solskjaer announces ‘he is hoping form’ convinces superstar duo to stay at Manchester United
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes that Manchester United’s improvement this season will convince Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani to remain at the club
Despite his troubles this season, Solskjaer is on the verge of leading United into another Europe League final while also finishing second in the Premier League.
But there has been alot of rumours in the media, again, that Cavani and Pogba are seeking to pack their bags at the end of the season and leave Old Trafford, for two very different reasons.
Pogba has been a magnet for speculation surrounding his future ever since his return to the club from Juventus, while Cavani is hoping to make a return to his homeland to finish off his glittering football career.
But Solskjaer remains keen for both to remain on the Old Trafford books: “[Paul] knows my feelings about him and that I want him to stay,” the Norwegian told his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday’s clash with champions Liverpool at Anfield.
“It’s about creating an environment that we thrive in, a competitive environment and a team who challenge for trophies.
“He and Edinson are winners but they are also human beings and it’s important that they enjoy coming in and enjoy playing for this team.
“If we can play like [we did in a 6-2 win over Roma on Thursday] against Liverpool, and they can feel our progress, our chances are probably bigger to keep them.”
It would be very good to see these two players stay at the club this summer, but we have a feeling that one, at least, will be departing the club.
